About Kelly

I became a CNA in July of 2014 after losing my daughter Karleigh to a genetic disease SMA. It's alot like ALS except it's the infant form. I wanted to help people in the same way that the nurses and staff helped my baby girl. I fell in love with the job. I started the pre nursing school in 2016 and am currently going for my RN at Lewis and Clark. Now that I take care of people for a living I couldn't imagine doing anything else.

Hi, an thanks for taking the time to read this. I'm not one to talk about me, so this feels a little strange ..but here I go. I believe what makes me a good caregiver, is because I really do care. Years ago I use to work in nursing homes an did home health. I saw a lot an it wasn't good. I will never let anything happen to anyone I care for. I started working for a company called Impact CIL, where I take care of those with a disability . Now, I'm wanting to branch out more like this here. I am 58 an my kids are grown an gone. So this is what I'm choosing to do with my life, help others. I am certified but through Impact CIL only at this time. Looking forward to meeting you an talking w you. Or just listen. Have a blessed day, Mariam Sutton
